Pretty Patterns

Pretty Patterns to make for the warmer weather

Now that it’s getting warmer, we can start making pretty things! We don’t have to just make warm things (not that warm things can’t be pretty), but there are so many lovely pretty things to make that are perfect for warmer weather! Let’s get making some pretty things!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

Pretty things for the home, like this lovely Super Chunky Doily Throw Blanket/Rug! Gorgeous! I love this blue colour, but I’m also a sucker for white doilies, even though they show dirt quickly.

Also, pretty things like this gorgeous little Kitty Crochet Pattern! What a lovely handmade baby shower gift this would make!

Need to improve your crochet skills for one of these projects? Check out Blueprint’s online crochet classes and learn at your own pace!

Speaking of pretty things for babies, this Crochet Dress Pattern for Babies is available in 4 sizes! So sweet! Makes me wish I had crocheted some dresses for my girl when she was little!

But there are not just pretty clothes that you can make for babies! You can also make pretty things for you (or your teen-aged girl!), like this crochet pattern for the Hanna Tee! Gorgeous!

I know I mostly feature knit and crochet patterns here, but I stumbled upon this pretty sewing pattern for the Duchess Dress and I just couldn’t resist. I don’t do a lot of sewing, but I think this would make just the loveliest dress for a young girl! Perfect for a flower girl!

More pretties for babies! This knitting pattern for the Maelynn Newborn Bonnet would make the perfect newborn photography prop!

And there are so many pretty doll patterns to make, I had to include at least one. Carmen Rent has so many pretty doll patterns: April and her Rabbit amigurumi crochet pattern is just one of many!

Get making, makers! It’s pretty time! Go grab yourself a pattern today or pin it for later!

Spring Patterns

Is it spring yet? It has felt like a very long winter here. We had the coldest February in 40 years here in my city, and judging from the posts on social media, it sounds like it’s been pretty similar all over North America. I’m looking forward to spring… anyone else? Let’s take a look at some lovely spring-inspired patterns to help melt away the snow and get us excited for the upcoming (warmer!?) season.

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

Spring is the perfect time to wear t-shirts! And make them, too! Try this Easy Knit Tee Knitting Pattern for a simple, but gorgeous knitted t-shirt pattern!

Spring is also a great time to make and wear a poncho! You know you want a poncho! Check out this fantastic Crochet Ava Fringed Poncho Pattern by Sewrella for an easy level crochet pattern. It would make a perfect first garment project because you wouldn’t have to be as concerned about getting a perfect fit as the look is more relaxed!

For the sunny Spring days ahead, this Crochet June Sun Hat Pattern is another easy and adorable crochet pattern by Sewrella.

To make that hat even more spring-y you could add some spring to it or any decor or garment; check out this Floral Fantasy Collection of sweet flower appliques by The Hat and I. I love the idea of turning a bunch of these flower appliques into a piece of feature art! Gorgeous!

Not just for decor, flower appliques can make adorable headbands! Get this pattern bundle including 6 headband patterns and 3 flower patterns from Two Girls Patterns.

I think handbags are for all seasons, but something about boho style just screams warmer weather. Start working on one of these Boho Flower Slouch Bags and you’ll be all ready for the beach or festivals this summer!

If spring is just taking far too long to bring forth the flowers from the ground, you can make your own that never die! Check out this adorable amigurumi pattern for these Moles with daffodils! How cute are they?!

Lastly, I couldn’t help but bring you this super adorable spring skunk pattern! Why are you not making one yet?! So sweet! I love the detail of her sparkling eyes and cute flower appliques! This would make a treasured gift!

So, after you catch up on your sleep from time-warping an hour into the future, go grab yourself one of these fantastic patterns and start making for spring today! Or pin it for later so you don’t forget.

Eight great knit and crochet patterns to encourage spring to hurry up and get here! I love the adorable daffodils and moles amigurumi pattern!

Patterns for Black History Month

I know I missed it by a week, but February is Black History Month, but my life getting in the way is not going to stop me from posting this late. I am not black, but I think it’s important to learn about the history of other people, especially marginalized peoples. Also, there’s been some tension in the “fiber community” (is that a thing? yes, apparently it is) around race lately and I’ve been convicted that if I don’t stand up against racism, my silence and my privilege allows the status quo to continue and the bullies to win. I want to thank Tyne Swedish for giving so much of her time to raise awareness about these issues and stand with the oppressed and stand against racism and oppression. Follow her Instagram account and buy her a coffee if you can!

I’m super sad that people of colour have been made to feel unwelcome in spaces for knitters and crocheters, so today I would like to highlight some patterns by black designers. It’s a small gesture, I know; but it’s what I do, so taking some time to highlight some POC designers seemed like something I could do. Go support some of these great designers by buying a pattern today and sharing it on social media (tag the designer) when you’re done!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

First up is Toni Lipsey of TLYarnCrafts. This woman is so adorable in her Instagram stories: so cheery and upbeat. She also has some gorgeous designs. It’s a little out of season right now, but eventually, winter will be over (right?). I love this Rebel Cami Pattern; it looks so casual, perfect to pair with jeans or cutoffs. I really love this halter-style top, how it really shows off the shoulders. (And isn’t her model just gorgeous?)

Another lovely (but not exactly perfect for a Canadian winter) pattern from TLYarnCrafts is this Lemonade Top Pattern. I love the open lacy back and it looks like it would make a great beach cover-up.

More appropriate for winter, Toni also has several gorgeous shawls including this recent one in Tunisian crochet, the Ada Shawl. I’ve never crocheted anything in Tunisian crochet, though my mother in law did show me how to do it and I crocheted a row for her, so I kinda know how. I like the way it looks. I should really give it a go… maybe with this pattern. I don’t usually wear shawls, but I do wear a lot of scarves, so I think this looks like I could wear it the same way I would a scarf.

Third Vault Yarns is a lovely designer based in the UK and I quite like these Burn the Capitol Fingerless Gloves. They were designed as a tribute to the Hunger Games for the Third Vault Hunger Games Yarn Club (which sounds awesome, by the way). Super cool and I love these fall colours!

A Raging Purlwind has designed this beautiful Knit Mermaid Top/Crop Top Patter Bundle, which I think is adorable. I love how she’s got curves, so the rest of us can see ourselves in a design.

I’m so completely over winter, so I’m just going to pretend that I could wear these fun summery designs now instead of in MONTHS. (ugh–ok sorry enough weather complaining). Check out this adorable Knit Love Note Tank pattern, also from A Raging Purlwind. So cute. Get making one today and you’ll be all set for summer!

Ok, so I’m already behind on publishing this post (I started last week when it was still February, but I’m not going to let perfection to be the enemy of good.) So choose a pattern from one of these fantastic designers or the many others who are also on Ravelry. Tyne Swedish has a saved Instagram Story featuring BIPOC Designers (if you’re new to that term, I had to look it up myself: Black Indigenous People of Colour) that you can check out, as well as one featuring BIPOC Makers.

Pin this post to share with your friends and share some love for these fantastic designers and their beautiful patterns. Or choose to pin your just your favourite! Choose from the pins below!

True Love Knits (and Crochets)

I know, I know, Valentine’s Day is just over a week away and you have already finished all your handmade gifts for your sweethearts. Oh, what’s that you say? You haven’t? Well, I have a few ideas for you.

One of my favorite sayings about knitting for other people goes like this: Knitting is like sex. If I love you and you appreciate it, it’s free, otherwise, you can’t pay me enough. Knitting and crocheting is definitely an act of love. The amount of time that goes into handmade items makes them so valuable and cost prohibitive that most people would say they can’t afford them.

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

First off this adorable True Love Beanie pattern is so simple and cozy looking, I just want to make one for each of my kids and take ridiculously adorable matching pictures of them to make them hate me because they’re too old for that stuff (but they’re not and they’d be soooo cute!).

Check out these adorable love notes hats! You could make one of these in an evening or two! Perfect little handmade Valentine's Gift!

Check out these adorable love notes hats! You could make one of these in an evening or two! Perfect little handmade Valentine’s Gift!

While we’re on the subject of hats (also because #polarvortex), this beginner knitting pattern for this Pixie Hat with Heart Applique is adorable and knits up quickly with a super bulky yarn.

If your knitting skills are a little more advanced, you can make this absolutely adorable xoxo beanie. Isn’t it great? What a fun pattern! There’s no mistaking that xo pattern!

Need to sharpen your knitting skills to take on one of these projects? Check out some online knitting classes from Blueprint!

Maybe you’re up to your eyeballs in hats, though. You have twice as many feet as you do heads, so you should need twice as many socks, right? If hand-knit socks doesn’t say love, what does, amiright? Check out this creative pattern: Key to My Heart Knit Socks.

Perhaps handmade toys are the love language of your sweetheart. If that’s the case, you could crochet this sweet and understated Amelie doll. Isn’t she adorable? I love her.

And this cute little Double Heart crochet pattern is another excellent choice for a handmade toy. Love their little hugging arms!

For a less obvious handmade Valentine’s Day gift, but still adorable (and who doesn’t love something a little unexpected?) take a look at this sweet amigurumi baby sloth teether toy.

Remember, friends, true love knits. You still have some time to whip up one of these lovely patterns for someone you love. It’s always a good time to tell people you care about how you feel.

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

Though not exclusive to farms, this adorable Little Gray Mouse patttern would make a great start to your farm animal collection. I love the pink nose!

This sweet Poncho the Donkey crochet pattern would also make a lovely start to your farm animal toys. I love his legs attached with buttons! So adorable!

We mustn’t forget the goats! Or they’ll bite our heads off! (AmIRight? Goats’ll eat anything!) Check out these sweet little amigurumi goats from PlanetJune!

And a horse, of course! This little beauty (Lucky the Horse) from Little Muggles Amigurumi Design is a lovely stuffed toy pattern, even if you weren’t trying to make a whole farm worth of stuffies!

Vest Patterns

I found some great patterns for you to check out today! Vests. Are they cool? I hope so, because I’m really liking them lately! Which one do you like?

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

This lacy Daydreamer Crochet Vest pattern from Megmade with Love looks easy and carefree. Don’t you love that fringe?

In a similar style, but with a little more warmth, The Wanderer Vest from KayKrochets also boasts an adorable fringe… and maybe a little less chain stitch!

I’m LOVING this faux fur crocheted vest pattern from Mama in a Stitch. This is definitely near the top of my list and is a fantastic use of Lion Brand’s new Go For Faux yarn.

I think knitting might be a little easier with this Go For Faux yarn though. I think it’d be easier to keep track of your stitches if they were on your needles all the time. This Go For Faux Vest knitting pattern from Knitatude looks simple and cute.

Another long fringe-y vest pattern… hmmm… I wonder what I should make? I keep looking at really similar patterns, so… ? hahaha. Also, I love the name of this vest from Hopeful Honey Designs: Whispering Birch Bohemian Vest.

My mind doesn’t immediately go to a pattern like this for a vest, but this Chain Link Armored Cowl Crocheted Vest Pattern from Woods and Wool Shop is super cozy looking.

I’m also quite liking this asymmetrical crocheted vest pattern: The Sherwood Vest from Newborn Knots: simple and trendy. Also, I love large buttons like that.

Here’s another knitting pattern for the knitters in the bunch. This Justice Vest Knitting Pattern from Bromefields is a great beginner pattern. Even as a more advanced knitter, sometimes a beginner pattern is just so refreshing because you can make it look amazing without as much effort or concentration as a more advanced pattern.

If you’re looking for a vest pattern, be sure to check some of these out and pin it to share with your friends!

Handmade Beach Wear

Great collection of crochet patterns for beach wear: cover ups, shorts, halter tops, bikinis and even these cool barefoot sandals! #craftevangelist #patternroundup

Are we tired of winter yet? Planning a warm weather get away soon? I wish I were. Maybe if I make one of these great pieces of beach wear, someone will take me away from the cold and snow to somewhere warm where I can enjoy the sun and the waves. Check out some of these great beach wear patterns to make for your holiday! Bonus: light yarns travel well, so you can even work on your project while you relax on the beach and wear it by the end of the week!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

This adorable vintage beach cover up crochet pattern is adorable and timeless, don’t you think? Really, put a little tank top under that and you could wear it to dinner, too! And it’s only $3.45 CAD!

That cover up is a little short, so maybe you’ll want to make yourself one of these adorable crocheted skirts? Super cute.

I love an oversized beach cover up, so this Boho Lace Off-Shoulder Beach Cover Up Tunic is a great option to slip over my swimsuit when I need to run to the snack shack.

Or maybe you’re less of a cover up person and prefer to make yourself this Summer Forever crochet halter top. One day I’m totally going to make myself a crocheted bikini to sunbathe in. Maybe for our next winter getaway. This halter top might be a good start.

These bright and fun granny square Lido Shorts are a hip option for the beach. Also, that bikini top is on point! (Sophie and Me PDF Pattern Design is a great pattern shop, and having made at least one of her patterns, they are well-written and I had great results!).

For a little bit more involved project, this beautiful crocheted boho dress pattern would be lovely to make up and wear out to a restaurant at your resort and could just as easily transition to the beach. I love versatile garments like that! This dress is so pretty!

For a smaller project that could probably be completed in an afternoon on the beach (or relaxing in your air conditioned hotel room), these Peacock Barefoot Sandals are a great boho style pattern that even a beginner can tackle!

Pick up one of these patterns to get ready for your winter get away today or pin it so you can find them later!

Cute Crocheted Cushions

Winter time is a great time to decorate! It’s a great time to do some online shopping (since who feels like leaving the house?) and it’s a great time to order your supplies and make some handmade decor items. I’m somewhat of a throw pillow convert, in that I used to be much more boring and practical and didn’t see why a person would want so many pillows around when they just seem to get in the way of sitting and sleeping and whatnot. But there are so many cute options, so I’ve come around! And now I’ve found so many fun patterns to make your own (and I’ve got a pattern idea in the works for a special custom pillow for my craft room… wait and see!!!). Check out the great patterns that I’ve found to make your own crafty pillows!

Starting off today’s pattern round-up is this adorable floral-embellished crocheted cushion pattern from Annie Design. I love the lacy texture on this pillow cover and the sweet little floral appliques really add a delicate touch.

Decor embellished with words is still totally on trend, so if you’re into that kind of thing, this crochet pattern for this rustic “blessed” throw cushion is a sweet farmhouse style pattern by Two Little Birds Patterns.

This adorable Love to Cuddle Pillow crochet pattern from The Turtle Trunk utilizes the popular faux fur (get some here) to make this completely cuddle-able cushion, perfect for the upcoming Valentine’s day holiday!

If you’re looking to throw some different shapes of cushions into your decor, you can try this textured round flower pillow cover pattern from Crochet Spot Patterns.

This adorable heart pillow crochet pattern from Peach and Paige Designs would be sweet in a nursery or a little girl’s bedroom. Also, what a fun Valentine’s pattern to work on!

So many of the fibre artists I know are loving llamas lately, so this super adorable Alpaca Llama Pillow from Anne Alster is completely on trend! (Also, she has many other adorable crochet patterns for pillows that will make you smile: check out her shop!)

Monogrammed pillows would make for a lovely wedding gift, don’t ya think? Or super fun for a kid’s bedroom, as well. Check out these Brixton Monogram Pillow Crochet Patterns also from Two Little Birds Patterns.

Of course, for some reason, the poop emoji pillow is a thing. Kids are so weird. But if yours seems to have a fascination with poop emojis, perhaps you would like to make them this bizarre pillow pattern from Soul Moon Rising?

Personally, I’d much rather have one of these Shark Pillows hanging around in my kids’ rooms. Super fun and whimsical crochet pattern from Spina Yarn Studio.

Which of these crocheted cushions tickles your fancy? Go get yourself a pattern today and get making! It’s so rewarding to make your own decor! Pin it to share with your friends!

More Gorgeous Hats!

It’s still hat season, right? Good, ’cause I’m still loving them and I’m still making them! I have a lovely assortment of knit and crochet hat patterns to show you today. The pattern designers are just going nuts! And I’ll tell you about all the goodies that I can’t wait to work with!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

This gorgeous chunky cable-knit hat from SoRoBellaCreations is the first on my list. Isn’t it lovely? This pattern comes in 5 sizes and it’s great for a beginner because it knits up with super bulky yarn, so it’s a super fast project. If you need some super bulky yarn, let me recommend We Are Knitters The Wool. I just got my first order this week and it is lovely to look at, lovely to touch and lovely to work with! If you use my referral code (MGMKTKWSM) you can get $10 off your first order!

If you’re looking for a cable knit hat that is a little less bulky, then you could try The Aisling Hat Knitting Pattern from AuntJanetsDesigns. It includes instructions for both DK and worsted weight yarn options and come in 3 different sizes. Also, if you’re looking for some gorgeous faux fur pompoms like that one, I recommend GingerSnapMandie‘s shop. She has a great assortment of beautiful and large (some 6-inch pompoms are on their way to me now!!!) pompoms that will finish of your hat with style!

If you’re in the mood for an adorable fair isle project, this adorable Moosey Slouchy pattern from KnitsNKnacks4U just might be the project for you. It would make a great hat for skiing around the holidays. It has a very festive feel to it!

The Timber Toque knitting pattern from LambandCoDesigns is another festive fair isle hat, which is also made with a super bulky yarn for another quick knit! You’ll be knitting up hats so fast, you’ll have to make new friends to give them to! (And oh.my.goodness, get yourself some huge white pompoms!)

Need to sharpen your knitting skills to take on one of these projects? Check out some online knitting classes from Blueprint!

If you’re not a knitter and prefer to crochet, this Aspen Basketweave Beanie Pattern from WeavingWonder has a lovely texture and slouch to it that is right on point! I’ve been meaning to try this stitch out, so this pattern is going to make my “to make” list (it keeps getting longer all the time!!!)

Here’s another lovely crochet pattern, striped-with-textures, The Sweeney Beanie from HookYarnsandLoops looks cozy and warm with a lovely interest! It looks great for crocheters who get bored with the same stitch fast!

The Amelia Beanie Crochet Pattern from AshleighRaeCrochet is yet another lovely textured crocheted hat pattern (with a swoon-worthy faux fur pom!) to crochet up that has a slouchy, textured-stripe. So fun. I need to make one of these, too!

There’s still plenty of winter ahead for us Canadians, so there’s still plenty of time to make up a lovely handmade hat from an independent designer. Which one will you make? Pin it to share or save for later!
